The Church of England has voted to allow women bishops for first time in its history.
The decision, taken by the General Synod in York, reverses a previous rejection in 2012.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev Justin Welby, said: “Today is the completion of what was begun over 20 years ago with the ordination of women as priests.
“I am delighted with today’s result. Today marks the start of a great adventure.”
The issue over whether women should be allowed to become bishops has caused internal division since the Synod approved female priests in 1992.
